Diversity, Equity and Inclusion in Immunobiology

In early 2017, a group of trainees in the department of Immunobiology, Zuri Sullivan, Justin Shyer, Saige Pompura, Esther Florsheim and Naomi Philip, founded the Immunobiology Working Group on Diversity & Inclusion (IWGDI). The IWGDI was formed to reflect on departmental culture, to create a welcoming and inclusive community, and celebrate diversity in the Immunobiology department. The faculty, postdoctoral fellows, graduate students, and staff who make up this group work together to not only establish practices that increase diversity at all levels of the department, but also raise awareness of issues related to diversity and inclusion.
